A Boeing 787-9 operated by Air Canada was conducting flight AC2287 from Vancouver International Airport (CYVR), BC to Hong Kong International (VHHH), Honk Kong. Approaching VHHH, the flight crew were cleared to waypoint LOTUS for an ILS approach Runway 25L. When the aircraft arrived over LOTUS, the flight crew contacted AirTraffic Controller (ATC) and reported being established on the ILS. ATC advised the flight crew to change to the tower frequency. Just
after, ATC observed the aircraft overshooting the localizer of Runway 25L and descending to 3900 feet above sea level (ASL), which is below the minimum sector altitude of 4300 feet ASL. ATC provided a terrain warning to the flight crew and the flight crew corrected the flight path to re-intercept the ILS Runway 25L. The aircraft landed at VHHH without further incident.

The flight crew reported receiving a false capture of the ILS Runway 25L and being visual with terrain and the airport during the event.
